HeadsupThe developers behind popular to-do list app Clear have created a new charades-type app for The Ellen Show called Heads Up!. It's a party game that is getting excellent reviews, including from our sister-site TouchArcade:

In a nutshell, you get a group of people together, load up the app, select a category, and then hold your iPhone (or iPad) up to your forehead. From there, you've got 60 seconds where a word will appear on the screen, everyone else shouts clues, and you try to guess it. If you get it right, you tilt your device down, if you can't get it and want to skip you tilt up. It sounds basic, but even beta versions of the game that randomly would appear at bars and restaurants of GDC was a ton of fun.

The game also utilizes the front camera of the iPhone to record friends trying to act out whatever the word is. Players can then share those videos on Twitter or Facebook, and also submit them to be featured on The Ellen Show.


Heads Up! is available on the iPhone and iPad for $0.99. [Direct Link]

Reminds me of the Office episode where you put nationalities on paper on your forehead and people would mock you and make fun of that nationality to get you to figure out what you were holding.

as per usual, it didn't play out nicely with the employees.

Also reminds me of "$25,000 Pyramid."

I expect to get Betty White as a partner then.
